Huge Crowds Watch Local
Sandlotters Mix Sunday
Four Out of the Eleven Games Played Prove of
High-Grade Order, While Seven Were Very One
sided; Three Battles Postponed, Wet Grounds.
By WILLIAM O. BLOZIES.
Out of the 14 amateur contests scheduled yesterday aft
ernoon byt the local sand-lotters of the five leagues that are
members of the 'Municipal Amateur Base Ball association
three were postponed on account of wet grounds, four were
fast and exciting until the finish while the other seven were
of the one-sided affairs.
Two of the three battles that
were postponed were bocked at
Thirty-second and Dewey avenue
and were scheduledas the feature
contests in their respective leagues.
The initial game was to have been
between the Trimble Brothers and
World-Herald teams, of the Booster
league, while the main event was to
have been put on by the Bowen Fur
nitures and the McCafferv Motor
crew. The latter contest would have
decided first place in the City legue
between these two teams.
The third postponed battle was
scheduled at Elmwood park, east
diamond, between the American
Railway Express and the J. B. Roots
M the American league.
Diamonds in Good Shape.
At Thirtysecond and Dewey ave
nue a large crowd had assembled to
witness the double program and
were much disappointed when
neither of the teams appeared. The
diamonds were in good condition
and . both , contests no doubt could
have been played according to the
According to Manager Art Moran
of the Bowen Furniture company
team, the game between his team
ar.d the McCaffery's was tailed off
at 12:15 o'clock. The Furniture lads
were ready to play, but according to
Moran, had received word from Sec
retary Isaacson of the association,
that the diamonds would not be in
condition to play on.
The Mickle Victrolas sprung a
big surprise in the City leaeue wren
they came back strong and defeated
the Willard Storage Battery compa
ry company by a 8 to S scoie, there
by making the race a tie tor fifth
place. The Union Outfitting com
pany won their second game of the
season by taking the Omaha Print
ing company to a 9 to 6 trimming.
E. Nufer's pitching for the Outfit
ters was a feature of the came, ug
well as the heavyvhitting of hi3 team
The Sample-Harts sprung the big
surprise of the day when they won
from the Universal Motor company
team by a 13 to 3 score, thereby
pulling the Universale down from
their 1,000 per cent to 500 and are
now tied for third place with the
motor crew. The Lniversals were
the favorites in this game, by Man
ager Shields announced last night
that over-confidence was the cause
of their defeat. The game was fast
and exciting for the . first seven
rounds and was a 3 to 3 tie, but in
the eighth Pitcher Sohm's weaken
ed and Sample-Harts drove his de
livery to all corners of the ' lot.
Belford, who relieved Sohm was
also hit hard, the winners securing
a total of 13 hits. Louis Scheef,
on the mound for the winners, al
lowed but seven hits and struck
out nine mon.
Fans See Fast Game.
; The best played game of the day
was staged at Thirty-first and Ames
avenue by the Riggs Ontical com
pany and the Paxton-Vierlings of
the American league, in which the
Riggs won by a close score of 2
to 0. The hitting of Tom Baum
gardner was responsible for the Op
tical's victory as he drove in both
of the runs. Tom player his fare
well game with the Riggs, as he
leaves for Wyoming tonight. Jim
Baumgardner's pitching also fea
tured. The Ramblers, by taking the
Daily News team to a It to 5 trim
ming, won their second consecutive
victory of the season and are in first
place in the Booster league with
1.000 per cent. The Benson Mer
chants, who were picked by many
of the followers of the Booster
league to be the "goat," came back
strong and won from the Maney
Milling company by a 7 to 6 score,
in a fast and exciting gme. The
Merchants have strengthened their
line-up and should they play during
the balance of the season as they
did yesterday, they no doubt will be
among the top-notchers when the
season winds up. The Trimble
Bhothers. for the second time this
season, were ready to inaugurate
their 1919 season but the weather
conditions preventetd them from do
ing so. ' '
In the Inter-City league, the Hard
ing Ice Cream company, formerly
the Willow Springfs Beverage, won
easily from the Beddeos by an 18 to
5 score, while the Harley-Davidsons
defeated the John Day Rubber com
pany, formerly the Walnut Hill Mer
chants, by an 11 to 5 score.
Bill Ort's pitching for the Town
send Gun company, and the hitting
of Seborn, Ort and Russo proved too
much for the Omaha Printing com
pany juniors,' and the Gunners won
their third consecutive game of the
season by the score of 9 to 2, and
are leading the Gate City league. Up
to the sixth inning the game was a 2
to 2 tie, but in the fatal seventh the
Gunners drove seven runs across the
plate., Seborn, Ort and Russo each
made a triple and two two-baggers.
The Beselins defeated -the McKen
ney Dental company, formerly the
Flitton Optical company, b m 11 to
3 score, while the Vinton Street Mer
chants went down in defeat at the
hands of the Originals by 16 to 8.
Although the weather was some
what chilly, large crowds were in at
tendance at all of the games, and im
mensely enjoyed the national pas
time as was handed out by the "big
leaguers of tomorrow." .
Murphy s Beat Longeway '
Squad at Athletic Park
Hays' excellent pitching combined
with some fast fielding, enabled the
Murphys to defeat the Longeway
team by a score of 3 to 0 in the Ath
letic park yesterday afternoon before
The Murphys won the game in the
first inning when they made a run.
Synek walked, stole second and came
home on Williams' bingle to center.
The Longeways came back strong
in the half of the first and put two
men on bases, but the pitching of
Hays, who struck out the next three
batters, was too much for the lads
over the river.
The; Murphys i scored two more
runs in the sixth, when the Longe
ways made three errors and Super
nois issued a base on balls.
Harry Williams played a good
game for the Murphys, making two
hits and not allowing a man to steal
base. Clair also made a few" spec
Supernoios, who was on the firing
line lor the Bluffs team, issued six
passes. He allowed four hits and
struck out 10 men.
